Kendrick Inverters & Converters

12 Volt to 15 & 18 Volt Inverter

12 Volt to 15 & 18 Volt Inverter This is a stand-alone inverter that will convert 12 vdc to 15 (for Astro Physics mounts) & 18 vdc (for Meade classic, Losmandy Gemini and Gemini II and Takahashi mounts). This is an excellent product for anyone who already owns a battery and needs to provide 15 or 18 volt power to a GoTo telescope or mount.

These inverters are not susceptable to fluctuating battery voltages that can be caused by fluctuating power demand. The inverter voltage will remain constant.

Simply plug the inverter into a cigarette lighter socket on your battery and the inverter will change the 12 volts on your battery to 15 or 18 volts, depending on which inverter you purchase.

This is the same inverter that is built into our 2081-18, 2081-15, 2083 and 2083-15 batteries.

This device will require the purchase of one of our specialized Telescope Power Cables to power your telescope mount. The power cable goes from the inverter to your telescope mount's power plug.


2085-INV 12 volt to 18 volt Inverter for Meade LX200 Classic, Losmandy Gemini and Gemini II, Takahashi mounts. CAN $177.00
2085-INV-15 12 volt 15 volt inverter for Astro Physics GoTo mounts. CAN $177.00


120 Volt to 12 Volt Converter

Power Supplies Our dew control systems require 12 volts DC. If you are using a battery to run the system, we recommend a 5 amp hour battery as a minimum. If you want to run the system from a wall plug, you will need a 120 volt to 12 volt DC "Regulated" step down power supply with a minimum output of 5 amps.

Pictured to the right are our Regulated 120 volt to 12 volt DC power supplies which are excellent for operating our systems from a wall socket. We also build portable 12 volt power packs and offer other power solutions that can be used with all your astro equipment that is used in the field. See Power Packs for more information on the power systems we offer.
